Comparison of three methods of acclimatizing male college students to heat stress.

Physical educators and coaches in their quest for success have generally ignored one very important principle: heat acclimatization. The ability of the human body to adapt to hot environmental temperatures is being discussed more and more by educators, doctors, and coaches. Because many people live and work in the moderate environment of air conditioned buildings and then come out to play in a hot environment, it is important that they first become acclimated. Living an air conditioned existence detracts from natural acclimatization to living and working at high temperatures, and modifies the upper levels of warmth an individual can be expected to tolerate.
